5 Things: Kitchen Essentials for the Millennial

“5 Things” is a blog series featuring my must-have items for everything from food and fitness to beauty and wellness.  

Here are 5 MUST HAVE kitchen gadgets to make cooking faster, clean-up easier, and food storage more environmentally friendly.

If you can’t handle the heat get out of the kitchen… or just grab these kitchen gadgets!

  1. Bee’s Wrap – Sustainable Reusable Food Storage
    I am all about smart hacks that help keep our planet healthy. Instead of using rolls and rolls plastic wrap or foil to store foods, try Bee’s Wrap. It’s sustainably made with beeswax, certified cotton, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. Best of all, it’s easy to clean and can be reused over and over again.

2. 3-Compartment Bento Reusable Food Storage Containers

Up next is my all-time favorite tupperware to help food prep go as smoothly as possible. These three compartment, reusable storage containers help make perfectly portioned meals and they are BPA free. Plus, they are microwave and dishwasher safe–a must for me! The lifetime guarantee offered ensures that your meal prep convenience lasts a lifetime.

3. 60-Second Salad Maker

We all know we need to eat more vegetables and this tool will help you do just that in 60 seconds flat. Here’s how it works: throw veggies in the bowl, rinse, pop on the lid, flip it over, and cut the veggies in the perfectly placed slits. That’s it! Now you have no excuses–get your five servings of vegetables every day!

4. The Master Pan
No time for dishes? No problem! With the Master Pan, you can cook an entire meal using one pan. It has five compartments so you can cook your chicken, potatoes, vegetables, and more all at once! The pan is nonstick, stain-resistant, and PFOA-free. Plus, it’s dishwasher and oven safe (up to 350F). Tell me you aren’t dying for this kitchen essential?

5. Frywall Splatter Guard
This kitchen tool is one you never knew you needed. But trust me, it’s a must-have if you hate cleaning up big messes after cooking. This splash guard will prevent rings of grease left on your stove and keep pasta sauce splatters contained. Just pop it on whatever dish you are cooking with and say goodbye to extra cleaning!
